When I was growing up, we lived in a poor farming community in NE Pennsylvania. While we had plenty of lakes in the area, we had no swimming pools. My father decided that I should learn how to swim. We went to one of the lakes in the area and my father put a boat in the water. He rowed me out a little ways from shore and threw me overboard. I swam back to shore. He took me out further and threw me overboard again. Again I swam back to shore. He took me out still further to the deepest part of the lake and threw me overboard once more. I swam back to shore again. That's how I learned to swim. Actually, learning to swim wasn't the hard part ... it was getting out of that burlap bag.

A lawyer was driving much to fast down a country road. He ran a stop sign and broadsided another car. The lawyer jumped out of his car, ran to the other driver and pulled him out of the wreck. The other driver said "I'm fine, I'm just a bit shaken up." The lawyer then reached into his jacket and gave the driver a flask and said "Here's some brandy that I keep handy for medicinal purposes." The driver took several large swigs of the brandy and handed the flask back to the attorney, who promptly put the cap back on and returned it to his jacket. "Aren't you going to have some?", the driver inquired. "Sure," said the attorney. "Right after the cops leave."

A blonde woman was sick and tired of all these blonde jokes and how all blondes are perceived as stupid. She made up her mind that she would show her husband that blondes really are smart.One day, while he was at work, she purchased a can of paint and decided to repaint the living room. Her husband arrived home at 5:30 and smelled the distinctive odor of paint. He walked into the living room and found his wife lying on the floor in a pool of sweat. He observed that she was wearing a ski jacket as well as a fur coat. He went over to her and asked if she was OK. She acknowledged that she was. He then asked what she was doing. She replied that she had set out to prove to him that not all blondes are dumb and, to do so, she had elected to paint the living room. He then asked why she was wearing both a skijacket and a fur coat. Her response was that she had read the directions on the paint can and they said, FOR BEST RESULTS, PUT ON TWO COATS.

On a ranch in Montana, a rancher hired a guy to help with putting in a long stretch of new fence. He had the guy dig holes for the posts. At first, the rancher thought the guy was an excellent worker. This guy could dig holes faster than anyone the rancher had ever seen or heard of. Eventually, though, the rancher found out that this guy only worked hard when someone else was around. When the guy was off by himself, he slacked off somethin' terrible. So the rancher fired him. The next day, the guy came back with a hand gun and a semi-automatic weapon. He shot and killed several people with the semi-automatic before turning the hand gun on himself and committing suicide. The traumatized rancher learned first hand what we have all heard. You gotta be wary of disgruntled post hole workers.
